that there will be a vote on tuesday, the 5th which is martin luther king's birthday. we hope our congress will take that day to show leadership and compassion. we understand it will be broken into two votes, the house republican leadership is putting up about a $17 billion version. and then we have the original $60 billion total passed by the senate which will also be considered. >> 50 billion, the remainder there. how have you been able to pay for the bills in between. you have not stopped recovery efforts. >> we are already $10 million deep into funding for recovery and rebuilding efforts. we are using the credit cards. that is exactly what many shore communities are doing. we can't wait for lack of leadership in washington. the summer season is our bread and butter and we really have to get things going now in order to be prepared for the coming season. >> when do you hit your credit line? how much longer can you survive? >> well, we are going to continue to move forward and we will survive and get this done. >> a month? two months? >> i think we are in better shape than that with $10 million th
to honor the reverend martin luther king jr. on january the 19th, gun rights activists have announced that they will mark gun appreciation day two days before the president's inauguration. urging gun owners to turn out en masse at gun vendors with signs reading, hands off my guns. their latest contribution to curbing gun violence in america. let's get right to our panel. here in new york is msnbc contributor joy reid, who is also the managing editor of thegrio.com and in washington larry ward of gun appreciation day. mr. ward, can i begin with you? >> of course. >> you've said that the president wants to gut the second amendment. what specifically has this president done during his first four years in office to undermine your gun rights? what has he done? >> well, absolutely nothing. >> thank you. >> and the truth is he had to run for re-election, but what he said was -- and i believe joe biden guaranteed that they would pass sweeping gun control legislation by the end of the month. >> but, in fact, as you know, he promised when campaigning in 2008 to reinstate the 1994 ban on assault
in the past. particularly the one for which the man was honored today dr. martin luther king was so famous and civil rights. in fact civil rights for gays was a centerpiece of the president wants speech today. he said more about it than any president in a presidential address. while is he preoccupied with social justice that's in part because these other issues that you spoke about, invog gore rating the economy which has had such anemic recovery and dealing with the burgeoning deficits and exploding national debt are issues that don't particularly interest him. i'm not sure that the economy ever has. you may recall when he first took office he got through congress this stimulus package which was kind of a grab bag of spending of all kinds favored by members of his party in congress and then he basically abandoned the issue to take on something that i think appealed to him much more, that being the reform of the healthcare system. known as obama care which was adding another entitlement. >> >> bill: let me stop you there you would agree with me that president obama is a i have intelligent
. reverend martin luther king, jr., who also has a new memorial here in town. thousands of people have gone through this tent today on the national mall for this national day of service. about a hundred or so national or local organizations, signing people up to go back home and donate their time and maybe even some money to good causes all around the country. today we expect anywhere from a quarter million to 300,000 folks to take part in festivities all across the country in national day, and they're very excited. this is a family event for a lot of folks. they want their young people to get involved and build a new spirit of giving back to other people, craig. that's what this weekend's all about. >> ron mott there from the national day of service. we'll come back to you later with the latest on the inaugural prep, as well. thank you, sir. >>> as the president prepares for his big day, he is still spending the weekend pushing one of his top agenda items. changing gun laws in this country. in his weekly radio address, president obama urging people to call their lawmakers. >> ask your memb
presidential inauguration. tomorrow's public ceremony holds the fitting honor of taking place on martin luther king jr. day at 11:5 eastern, america's first african-american president will take the oath of office and usher in his second term. joining me now is u.s. congressman and civil rights legend john lewis. representative lewis, so glad to have you here on this momentous day. thanks for joining us. >> thank you for having me today. >> well, when you think back on all the years of struggle, the lives lost, the blood shed, what does it mean to you to see the nation's fist african-american president take the oath of office for a second time? >> well, it mean ags great deal to me and to our nation. it is almost unreal, almost unbelievable through all of the struggle, through all of the suffering and pain, through the beatings, duress, to jailing, it is historic. as president lyndon johnson said almost 48 years ago when he spoke to the congress, he said it's like history and faith coming together. he was talking about the need to pass a voting rights act. just think, less than 50 years ago man
, martin luther king jr. we will pause to remember dr. king's birthday and i'd like to bring in andrew young the third, former civil rights leader and ambassador andrew young. good to see you, sir. >> hey, craig, how are you doing? >> great. your father is a long time friend and confidant of reverend king. what have you learned from your father, and also, his generation as well? >> you know, i think that it is very important that we as americans today give each other a faith-saving way out, and that is one thing that my father was adamant about throughout his life is that when you have an opponent and have indifferences about a subject, that you give your opponent a way out. to keep his dignity and that is how you create change, and that is what dr. king and my father and dr. lowrie and others did during the civil rights movement when they were fighting bigotry. and unfortunately, that is what the president obama is going to to have to learn to do with the go gop. >> what are your thoughts as we get ready to see president obama sworn in for a second time tomorrow? >> i think that it's
of the washington mall to hear reverend martin luther king jr. deliver his "i have a dream" speech. to join me to reflect on it is elizabeth alexander, professor of african-american studies at yale university. it's lovely to have you hear. >> it's great to be with you. >> we have been talking politics. i feel like one of the things the president suggested at the first inauguration was to bring a certain arts and cultural insensitivity and expression to his presidency. as you have watched the first term, what has it felt like to you as it occur snd. >> it's been thrilling. the inauguration was a template. different poetry, aretha franklin. the diversity of forms in which american excellence expresses itself. we have seen the wonderful concerts they have done at the white house. the paul simon singing stevie wonder songs, tony bennett singing stevie wonder. poetry, all these programs televised for everyone to see. the best kind of family viewing saying families should gather together and receive the arts as a gift, if you will. we have seen the arts initiative that recognizes in schools that exc
to abraham lincoln, and one that belonged to martin luther king jr. the president is going to be sworn in with king's bible on martin luther king jr. day. he'll be facing at that moment the lincoln memorial, where king delivered his famous "i have a dream" speech 50 years ago. as far as symbolism goes, it does not get better than that. and then what had gotten better are california's finances. for the first time in five years california will not have a budget deficit. in fact, democratic governor jerry brown today announced a budget for the next fiscal year that bloomberg news projects to have a $851 million surplus. a surplus. as recently as 2009 california ran a $49 billion budget deficit deficit. now $851 million surplus. thanks to voter-approved tax increase the past election, the budget actually increases investments, including for california schools. it takes a progressive to make the tough calls clean up the mess and put the state on the right track. just sayin', we tip our hat to california governor jerry brown. then way across the country in another deep blue state progressiv
end of the mall, a spot the president could see during his speech yesterday, martin luther king jr. said the same thing, using different words. instead of collective action he said "we cannot walk alone." in his "i have a dream" speech, the reverend martin luther king jr. said many of our white brothers as evidenced by their presence here today have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny, that their freedom is bound to our freedom. we can't walk alone. of course, conservatives never much liked dr. king. but conservatives claim an enduring devotion to our founding documents, the declaration of independence, the constitution, even though they have always had trouble believing those founding documents really apply to everyone. so of course, conservatives just hated this. >> we, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths, that all of us are created equal. is the star that guides us still, just as it guided our forebears through seneca falls and stonewall, just as it guided all those men and women, sung and unsung, who left footprints along this gr
by abraham lincoln. one owned by martin luther king jr. those are the two men barack obama cites as his greatest inspirations. he's the fourth president to be sworn in using two bibles. likewise, the entertainment today as has been well documented, beyonce singing the national anthem. james taylor will perform as will "american idol" winner kelly clarkson. she was an outspoken mitt romney supporter now here to celebrate the president's inaugural. i kind of feel like i need extra help. let's make history ourself for the first skype interview in the politically direct coverage of the 2012-2013 campaign season. to the great bill press right there on the ground in washington, d.c. good morning, sir. happy inauguration day. >> bill: hi, john. hi, jennifer. i'm so proud to make history on current tv today. i'm not the only one to do so today. >> jennifer: you're skypeing from the ground so you can give us some perspective. where are you located, bill? >> bill: well, if you are -- president obama standing at the podium, right, look out over the washington mall and you turn your head to the rig
from abraham lincoln and the other from dr. martin luther king jr. andrew seattle who is with the freedom from religion foundation. mr. stittle, abraham lincoln and dr. king too two amazing american icons you want to take their bibles and remove them from the ceremony. >> i much prefer dr. king's writing on the letter from the birmingham jail where he talks about the white church standing on the sideline mouthing trivialalities and pyes irrelevancy while he does the work of the civil rights movement. >> bill: you must know that dr. king invoked god in almost every speech that he made. >> article 2 section one of the constitution which lays out the oath does not say anything about the word so help me god. it says i will preserve to the best of my ability, preserve, defend and protect the constitution of the united states period. it's kind of ironic that the president is going to amend that in the middle of it. >> bill: do you know why george washington wanted the words god so help me god in? do you know why? >> george washington did not say so help me god. the first rec
.com/tv and never go to the post office again. >>> the inauguration comes on martin luther king day. 47 years since the death of doctor king. the first african-american president takes office for his second term. joining me in the studio, reverend jesse jackson, founder of the rainbow push coalition. a pleasure. >> thank you. >> thank you for being here. let's talk about dr. king and the perspective of what i said, 45 years since his death, but we have an african-american president for the second time taking office. give me your thautsds on that. >> there's immense pride in that. the fact is, for 244 years we were in slavery, the emancipation proclamation, jim crow, only free since 1966, from selma, alabama, really, to washington is quite a journey. the steps that he'll take the oath of office was built by ancestors who were enslaved, about 170 miles from jamestown, first landed in 1609. a lot ofs h s hahistory and loo across at the dr. king statue and lincoln memorial. the emancipation. a lot of stuff going down. i think dr. king, planning a poor people's campaign. beyond the issue of slavery, and
been available to everyone in america at the time. let's listen to this mularkey. >> i think martin luther king would agree with me, if he were alive today, that if african-americans had been given the right to keep and bear arms from day one of the country's founding, perhaps slavery might not have been a chapter in our history. >> what a dumb, dumb nut. joy, you've got to respond. this is not a nut but a dumb nut. slaves didn't come to america as citizens, came in shackles, in the bottom of a ship somewhere if they were lucky to be alive when they got here. the idea they would be armed by anyone. he's obviously patternizing here, trying to act like he cares about the fate of black people and some sort of number he was playing here. who would believe this new larky. >> why is it that every time the far right makes an argument that's insane, they jump on the civil rights movement and slavery and try to latch their argument on to the history of african-americans. >> as if they give a damn or be up in front. >> you don't remember ted nugent standing in front of everyone in the civil r
heartburn fast. ♪ oh what a relief it is! >>> this past monday, martin luther king day doubled as inauguration day. reportedly 1 million people formed a national crowd on the national mall. 55% of the crowd from 2009. still, the largest crowd ever for a second inaugural. at least one of the attendees was henry march. maybe there were others on hand, but this is a story about one henry marsh, a virginia state senator. one of 20 democrats in the virginia assembly. like wise, 20 republicans in the same body so, an even split until state senator marsh was absent on monday, attending the inauguration. thus, by a 20 to 19 vote, republicans passed a revised gerrymandered district map to go into effect on 2015, the year of the next state senate's election. they claim the map would create a majority black district. the 25th district, a democratic stronghold that includes my old backyard of charlottesville, virginia is one seat this plan could eliminate. given the republicans adjourned that session at 4:10 p.m. in memory of general stonewall jackson, i'm sure racial sensitivity wasn't hi
. >> the right to vote. >> michael: it was a very clever speech. he we have in martin luther king jr.'s speech. >> from the left and the right. from folks news to the nation claim this was a liberals coming out speech. it just wasn't. if this was a liberal speech yesterday then the conservatives really have won the debate. they have taken mainstream ideas ideas, and titled them liberal. their view of liberal is anything that is not right wing tea party. >> michael: let's go to what they think is a crazy liberal theme. >> they are awful. >> michael: yes, they are awful but they thing think the climate change does not exist. >> it was a recognition that science matters. 98% of scientists, every environmental climate change all over the world including china and russia say climate change is real and man is the significant contributor to climate change. no one's lives are saved if we make hards harder to get but this is 99% of scientists. >> michael: 9the benchmark piece of recommendation will have something to do with the keystone xl pipeline. is this just a spoon full of sugar to let that medic
the dr. martin luther king jr. whose birthday was yesterday and we'll celebrate monday the same day as obama's inauguration. it signifies how dr. king's activism was not just geared towards racial injustice but every bit as much towards social justice as well. while our country has made significant strides in racial equality it very. soften seemsoften it seems we're going the opposite way against poverty with nearly 50 million people now living at or beneath poverty. carrying the torch and renewing the battle against poverty is television and radio host author, activist tavis smily. now tavis's goal is to reduce poverty in half in ten years and completely eradicate it in 25. while that may seem like an impossible goal, let's remember another quote from dr. king. we must accept finite disappointment but never loss infinite hope. now joining me now is host of tavis smily on pbs and the tavis smily show on public radio international. >> thank you. >> why are we going the wrong way against poverty in this country? >> the elite number one. they also don't contribute to the campaigns of t
of a saint dressed in the skin of a baby boy by the name of martin luther king, jr. and while dr. king's legacy has been most accurately described in terms of his nonviolent pursuit of civil rights, some unfortunate and deluded individuals have tried to claim that a gun appreciation day this coming weekend will somehow honor the great man's legacy. it's such nonsense that it's hardly worth the time refuting. but as the president now reflects upon recommendations from his gun violence task force, there are some words of dr. king that seem particularly pertinent. in his famous letter from birmingham jail written in 1963, dr. king spelled out the perennial danger of doing nothing because doing something may be difficult. as we continue to remember those 20 children and 6 staff members who were shot and killed at that elementary school in newtown, connecticut, let's heed the words of dr. king. we will have to repent in this generation, he wrote, not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people, but fohe
holiday weekend this year. today vice president joe biden's gun violence task force is holding martin luther king reply meeting, including one currently underway with sportsmen and wildlife interest groups. later biden has invited the nra and wal-mart as well. the task force is talking about a range of responses to the newtown shooting including circumventing congress if they won't play ball. >> the president is going to take a look at executive action that can be taken. we don't know what that is yet. we're compiling it all with the help of the attorney general and all the rest of the cabinet members. >> south carolina republican congressman jeff duncan isn't having any of that. in a statement he wrote, "the founding fathers never envisioned executive orders being used to restrict our constitutional rights. we live in a republic, not a dictatorship." the drudge report didn't miss a step posting white house threatens executive orders on guns with photos of hitler and stalin. joining us now from washington is a survivor of the have virginia tech shooting and assistant director of feder
, the president took his oath today on two bibles, one once used by dr. martin luther king. of course today is the marking of that day, mlk day, and one of abraham lincoln. how do you see this moment in the context of that struggle because that was resonant and poignant, wasn't it? >> it was very powerful, and keep in mind he said something, martin, that tied it all together. he said that we realized long ago that we could not survive and thrive as half slave state and half free. and basically i think what he was saying is we've come a long way, and i think he showed what lincoln did to make the country stronger, again having a vision of what we could do, and then i think he tried to use that to say, okay, now a lot has happened in between those times. we still face difficulties, but let's, again, be inspired by the aspiration of those who came before us so that each person could pursue happiness, you know, life, liberty, and property, and do it in a way that made sense. so i really think -- as i listened to chris, i couldn't help but think of a note i wrote while the president was speaking
. last night they took us behind the scenes for a historic chat between president obama and martin luther king jr. >> so, tell me, dr. king, have i lived up to the promise of your legacy? >> barack will get to that. first things first. did you, did you see that girl, beyonce? >> excuse me. >> that girl, beyonce. did see her out there? i was like, what. >> beyonce, oh, yes, sir, she is a very beautiful women. >> beautiful. raquel welch was beautiful, i had to keep pinching myself. i thought i was having another one of my famous dreams. >> dr. king, can we please discuss more important issues. there are very real changes facing this nation. >> speaking of ch
statements they have made about martin luther king and the civil rights movement going after the president's children. contrast that with what the president is doing which you mentioned in the setup piece, which is meeting with law enforcement, and if you take a look back at what happened in 1994, the principal strategy of those who wanted to pass the assault weapons ban was to get with law enforcement. if you were for common sense gun regulations you were for getting tough on crime. if you were against them, you were weak on crime. that got a number of votes from the republican party. the president clearly occupying the political center with law enforcement, parents, teachers, community leaders. the nra and some elements of the republican party associating themselves with people that would desecrate the memory of the victims in newtown, people that would then try to, as "the new york times" exposed yesterday, market assault weapons to 10-year-olds, i think the contrast becomes pretty clear and who occupies the political center is pretty clear. >> i guess when the gun lobby isn't shouting
in the civil rights movement when i was in my teens and 20s. i met dr. martin luther king jr. i was doing a play called fly black bird about the civil rights movement. i was a young student activist in that musical. and we sang at a civil rights rally where dr. king spoke. and after that -- rally we had a private meeting with dr. king, and i'll never forget that moment when i shook his hand. we are working on this altogether, whether it is civil rights for african-americans, or equality for women or equality for the lgbt community. >> we're out of time, i learn something amazing about george takei, he met drmartin luther
to say, neil at his second inaugul as he put his hand on martin luther king, jr.'s bible and lincoln, i expect him to look american people in the face. ask not what you can do for your country, ask what your country and government can do for you. this is awful. we $16.4 trillion debt and mounting. the president's dared republicans to call him on spending problem. folks if you don't think you will have jobs now, you will not have them in another four years. that is the problem. neil: think about it, whether you're on the right or left, we have a very brief honeymoon period, window, in any new administration to attack something that might be controversial and certainly, let's say reining in entitlements. maybe slowing the growth of the military, anathema to republicans. it fits that description. but if you don't do it in that immediate period, you never do. and so it is put off for another few years. that is why i'm reading into these preparations for the inauguration and wondering, where is the talk of this? it might pop up in the president's speech. it might pop up in remarks i get out
dedicated to doing something of this nature, but this inauguration will fall on martin luther king day. there's a lot of symbolism in that. president obama will be sworn in using one of martin luther king's bibles. this day is not expected to spark the huge, unprecedented crowds we saw in 2009. but it's not going to be small. hundreds of thousands are expected to turn out to kick off this historic weekend. as washington gears up for the nation's biggest party, people from all around the country are arriving, ready to celebrate. >> it's just one of those things i think you should do. and it's one of the things -- it's on my -- on the bucket list. >> we believe that he does hold the promise for the future and wanted to be part of it. so we came all the way from california. >> reporter: dress rehearsals commenced while crews fanned out across the city to put on the finishing touches, covering the mall to protect it from the big crowds. and getting the d.c. convention center in shape for monday's two inaugural balls, down from ten last time. still organizers say with as many as 40,000 expe
detail. what we find up until the 1970s is a clear endorsement by martin luther king and everyone in the movement. >> as you put on, this is a path that goes way back, right? we might be able to say, look, we would be a better and safer country if there's no second amendment. we might be able to say it's not part of our tradition, but it's not where we are. we are in a place where wherever gun control legislation we are going to implement and institute is in this context. talk about civically responsible gun control legislation at the time we talk about the second amendment. >> here is the crazy thing. this is not a partisan political debate in the discourse of america. 92% of americans support things like background checks to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, felons, abusers, dangerously mentally ill. that has nothing to do with the second amendment right. 74% of nra members support criminal background checks. the only place where this is a heated partisan debate is in the halls of congress and sometimes, in the media when they pit two extreme sides against each other. it'

on about gun control is that his stance seems to me often sort of reminds me of martin luther king's stance which is we're all impoverished by this series of events and in the race speech as well, we're a nation all of us are deeply impoverished by this sort of horrible state in which we find ourselves. so it is not -- it's an interesting sort of technique and interesting way to sort of garner empathy among the people that are listening to you because it doesn't point fingers. i doesn't say you're wrong or right. it says look here. all of us are together. and we are all worse off because of x, y or z. which i think is an incredible technique both used in fiction very often and also certainly used by president obama. >> certainly i would say also specifically people who actually read fiction, picking up a book that is a creation is essentially saying i want to explore your life, another life. >> it's choosing to exercise that muscle. >> exactly. the people drawn to fiction anyway are people who are essentially asking the reader, do a good enough job to help me become invested in someone else
